||1787 COPPER Connecticut Copper, Mailed Bust Left, Arrows at Date AU58 NGC. M. 14-H, W-2895, R.3. 142.0 grains. Dr. Hall's white edge paint is clearly visible on this example. Both dies appear only on this variety, and nowhere else in the Connecticut series. Reverse die bulges are seen at ET on this attractive near-Mint example. Both sides have lovely olive-brown surfaces with hints of faded mint red and traces of light blue. Minor planchet roughness is evident in the hair details on the obverse, while post-production blemishes are virtually non-existent. The Garrett Collection AU rivals this Eric P. Newman coin. The 1975 Pine Tree-EAC sale had a coin graded VF-XF. Taylor, Perkins, and Ford each had XF examples. Ex: Dr. Thomas Hall; Virgil Brand; Brand Estate (sold for $10.50 on May 17, 1935); B.G. Johnson (sold for $15.00); Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
